Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

Nerve issues: When your leg senses danger. I.e. knee cartilage or nerve impingement the muscle "freeze" and the leg gives out. I first experienced this when I had knee arthroscope and when I woke up my leg was paralyzed. Not really but my quad would not lift my leg. It sensed the disruption in the knee. A protective mechanism. You need to know where the sensing mechanism is. Knee or back. Sounds like back ...Read more
How much does a knee MRI with contrast shows? What do they do during a Knee MRI with contrast what is the procedure
MR arthrogram: There are two kinds of contrast. Injecting contrast into the joint beside the kneecap will help look for tears of the meniscus or cartilage. Injecting contrast into an arm vein will help look for infection or tumor around the knee. It just depends what your doc is looking for. The needles used are thin, so they don't really hurt, honestly. Let us know if you need help reviewing your MR results. ...Read more
When would contrast be needed for a knee MRI? Had MRI without it and concerned it missed somerhing since it wasn't used
MRI without contrast: Is usually sufficient to diagnose knee pathology. In some special cases, a contrast material may be used during the MRI scan to show certain structures more clearly in the pictures. The contrast material may be used to check blood flow, find some types of tumors, and show areas of inflammation or infection. The contrast material may be put in a vein (IV) in your arm or directly into your knee. ...Read more
To what end?: Most mri's are read by radiologists. Did you get a copy of the report? The name at the bottom would be a radiologist. At the same time, your surgeon should also read the films and make surgical decisions from them. If you want another opinion, it should probably be from another surgeon to interpret the surgical indications. ...Read more
Not by yourself: The interpretation of a knee MRI study is complicated, and should not be done by a patient. There are many variations of anatomy and lesions which can be seen with MRI, and some of these are important, while others are not. Talk with your Primary Doctor about the results. If not satisfied, ask for a second opinion from another experienced Doctor. ...Read more

Do the knee MRI shows if there's a nerve problem? And can a nerve problem cause a constant knee pain for a year, as I went to 7 orthos and no effect
MRI won't show it!: Even the best MRI will not show a nerve problem unless you have a giant tumor of the nerve. MRIs only show big things. If you have constant knee pain, an orthopedic surgeon good at diagnostic assessments and exam testing should be able to help you. The most important thing is a good physical examination and a good clinical history. Diagnostic testing is only to confirm what the examiner suspects. ...Read more

Knee MRI report: - mild increased signal intensity of popliteal tendon, favor mild injury can you please explain and suggest course of action?
Knee sprain: Could be a minor knee sprain of this tendon, if this is the only finding on the mri, it sounds fairly minor. Also depends some on whether you had an injury to the knee or not. Mri's are based on fluid and increased signal can mean increased fluid in the tendon as can happen if there is an injury to it. Rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, ice it down (rice) can help if it is swollen/hurts. ...Read more

Fell 2/14 direct blow to knee. MRI chondromalacia. Hurts constantly with no relief. Bwc thinks preexisting. If let go will it get better/worse.?
It doesn't tend to get better easily.: I suggest you use a patellar support knee brace. Get some proper instruction on quadricep exercises. You want to avoid going up and down stairs. If you do need to go up and down stairs lead with the good leg. Avoid squatting and deep knee bends. Consider over-the-counter nonsteroidal medication such as Advil or Aleve (naproxen). If after a period of eight weeks you're still having a lot of symptoms you may consider seeing an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Diligence: You need to find a doc who is able to give you a diagnosis which can guide treatment. Most commonly for musculoskeletal problems this would be an orthopaedic surgeon; however, pain could be from bone, ligament, menuscus, irritated bursa, irritated synovium, a pinched nerve or radicular from your back or hip. Lots of zebras if common things are not present. You need to find a doc who is diligent ...Read more
